    • Need help for Fun-filled Vacation.

      Dubai Mar 25, 2015 at 6:19 AM

      Hello Everyone. So initially I planned a vacation in Istanbul - However, due to time restraints I've to delay my trip to Istanbul. So thought Dubai would be a good alternate for the few days I have.
      Okay So what I'm looking for is, the day I land(this Friday), I'd need company to hit the club. How do I go about that? I tried Travbuddy but over 90% of their members in Dubai section aren't active for over a month. Any other options?

      Secondly, I'd like to play some Tennis and Snooker. Would be great if you're interested in either sport or know someone who might be interested in Marina area. Also let me know if there's some sports forum for Dubai where one could find partners.

      Hi in June six of us are booked on a multi destination holiday which consists of three nights in Dubai, three nights in Bangkok and the rest of the holiday chilling in Hua Hin in Thailand. We have never been to Dubai before and my main concern is my medication and where I stand. I take three lots of blood pressure tablets, Asprin, Simvastatin and Ropinarole as and when I need it. I know that Dubai can get quite strict with Medication so I was hoping someone out there could, please, give me some advise

      1st time tourists arriving in separate terminals

      Dubai Mar 19, 2015 at 8:39 PM

      My husband anbd I are visiting Dubai for the first time. However, we are booked in different airlines and thus different arrival terminals and different time. I will arrive in Dubai 8 hours ahead of my husband and my arrival Terminal is 1 while my husband's plane will land in Terminal 3, 8 hours later.
      We have read in many forums that Dubai International Airport is so big and we have no idea how we can meet up with this different schedule of arrivals.
      Is it possible that after passing immigration and exiting terminal 1, I will then proceed to Terminal 3 arrival area and wait for my husband there so we can go together to our hotel?

    • Staying in Abu Dhabi as a young couple

      by seaseasea Online Now Jan 21, 2015 at 8:20 AM

      My boyfriend and I are planning on visiting Abu Dhabi and Dubai at the end of February. His uncle lives there and we are going to visit him and his girlfriend. However I am not quite familiar with how couples should behave when visiting. I read that showing affection in public is not the best idea, and I also read that unmarried couples shouldn't sleep in the same hotel room. So I am wondering if you have any advices about how couples (we are students) should behave and if it's a problem if we stay at their place. I hope not. Thank you in advance! :)

    • Beach / nice hotel for 20 hour transit

      by MCLF Online Now Nov 6, 2013 at 9:11 AM

      I have a long transit in Abu Dhabi. I arrive at 1AM and my flight leaves the same day at 10PM on route to Sydney. I'd like to stay in a nice hotel where I can relax, use the pool, maybe go to one of the private beaches, maybe venture out to a restaurant. I realise it's not particularly cultural of me but I really just want to relax before the long flight so not too fussed about seeing the sights. I've emailed a few hotels but they all seem intent on charging me for two nights accommodation because I'll be checking in late.

      Can anyone recommend one where I can check out in the afternoon but still use some of the hotel facilities until I have to go back to the airport.

      Thanks so much!

I do NOT want to be mistaken for a prostitute - sorry but I spent an eight hour flight from London next to an appalling man who spent the entire flight extolling the various virtues of various high end Abu Dhabi hotels for their amazing selection of Russian girls to a poor UK Abu Dhabi student .. Kind of put me right off Abu Dhabi and I now worry about staying there.. is it safe?
